Folded book Tutorial
September 1, 2011
A3 size paper.... (A4 works too but gives you a very small book)
Fold paper in half lengthways....
Open the fold back out.
Fold paper in half the other way....
Fold it in half again the same way...ie last 2 folds parallel to each other.
Open it all back out flat again. Your page will be divided into 8 even rectangles.
Fold the paper in half again....(the long side halved by the fold).
Cut along the crease line from folded side to where the creases meet.
Open the page out again then fold it in half lengthways again until you get this shape.
Push the ends together until the paper forms a + shape.... then fold the paper onto itself to form the book.
After you have done that... lay the book out flat again. The page sequence is shown in the picture.
Write and Illustrate your book ...closed...
....or open. 5 year old looking back at a finished book to check her mermaid drawing.
This one is so easy you could do it today ….I love craft activities like that!
P.S. Sorry about the quality of the pictures. The light in our lougeroom is a shocker.
